I was talking with someone today about feeling bad. Feeling bad is a result of you doing something that is not okay with you. I have learned to look for what I am not okay with when I am feeling bad. For example, I was complaining about my job the other day. I love kids. I love teaching. I do not love the limitations of my job… the pay ceiling, the constant mandates, the redundant paperwork.
So I have been on this search for my calling. I have been waiting for the skies to open up and a voice from on high to tell me what I should be doing. Then it occurred to me that when I do this job at the level of excellence everyday, I will outgrow it. When I feel bad about my job, it isn’t the job. It is what I am doing (or not doing) that is not okay with me. When I give 100%, I will feel better and I will attract my dream job and become self-employed.
